James M. Flaherty Program – Call for Applications

Honoring the life and work of Canada’s former Minister for Finance, James M. Flaherty,  the objectives of this program are as follows;

  • To build on the network of academic links between Canada and Ireland, resulting in increased academic co-operation, greater inter-cultural understanding and the potential for increased trade between both countries,
  • To support the development of excellence in research of individual scholars who have an expressed and demonstrable commitment to research in a field relating to both Canada & Ireland.

The Foundation supports preeminent scholars and academics who are leaders in their academic or post-academic professional field. If you are an established senior researcher or academic, and taking part-time sabbatical-style leave from your academic appointments, you may be eligible for the Flaherty Visiting Professorship. This award could support you making a trip as a Visiting Professor for up to twelve weeks in a university department in Ireland where you will collaborate in both research and teaching.

Amount: up to $27,000 depending on duration of stay

Deadline: May 31, 2017
